Exclusive Event Report: Los Angeles' Haunted Hayride 2013The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has become a Halloween tradition of sorts for Dread Central. Its carnival-like atmosphere, dark mazes, and signature ride through Griffith Park always deliver the goods – and for the 2013 edition, it’s better than ever.

Numerous celebrities took to the red carpet to celebrate the grand opening before piling onto the twenty-five-minute ride through the fog-drenched hills and cornfields. Outside, impressive assortments of freaks stalk visitors while live bands play. Delicious circus treats are served, paranormal experts speak on stage and inquisitionists conduct live witch hangings. This is one event where you’ll find as much care put into the stuff outside as in the main attraction itself.

This year’s hayride is easily the best it’s ever been: Highlights include a church of satanic cultists, burning undead children and a weird S&M alien zoo (where this writer shared a tender moment with one sexy alien freak). These are just a few of the things you’ll encounter as maniacs jump on and off your tram and target people’s screaming dates. One undead child even gave me this:

There’s also plenty to do once you’ve left the hayride – from posing for macabre photo ops to watching sword swallowers and Tim Burton-esque stilt-men. And for an extra fee, visitors can attend the Dark Maze, a pitch-black experience where groups are given a strobing lantern and set loose into the darkness where all sorts of creatures await.

If you want to experience all the great Halloween attractions California has to offer, the Haunted Hayride is a no-brainer. The event is currently running now through the end of October (every Thursday-Sunday in addition to Wednesday, the 30th). General Admission is $30, Double Attraction Passes are $39 and VIP passes that surpasses the line wait are $55. $5 Off Discount coupons are available with your purchase of any Sunkist or Squirt soda product at all Southern California Ralph’s Supermarkets. Your purchase supports the LA Parks Foundation, preserving parks for the people of Los Angeles. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW! Visit the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride website for complete details.

Death House Theatrical Release Delayed One Week Due to Black Panther Success

Published

Death House

If you were excited to see Death House this week, you’re going to have to pump your brakes as the film’s theatrical release has been postponed one week due to the success of Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther.

Eric Pakrinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House, who is distributing Death House in theaters, states, “Obviously, we are very disappointed to find such pressure from the exhibitors to hold-over multiple screens for ‘Black Panther’ but we are happy for the success that this film is providing to theatre owners, and we know that the slight delay we are implementing for ‘Death House’ will ultimately pay big dividends for the film.”

The plan is to now launch Death House on Friday, March 2nd with a special media event and public opening at the Regency Plant 16 in Van Nuys, California, where 20 cast members, along with additional crew, will be present. From there, the film will spread to other markets on March 9 and March 16. If performances are strong, additional markets will be added following those dates.

This shift in release also pushes back the home video and digital release dates to July, although no official date has been locked.

Director Harrison Smith recorded a video asking the horror community to turn out in droves when the film hits their market. You can see it below.

Rumor: Stephen King’s IT: Chapter 2 Starts Shooting this Summer

Published

on

Let me start this out by saying that this bit of Stephen King’s IT news has not been confirmed. That said, I can only hope that it is true so let’s see what you think.

Today, Omega Underground is reporting that Andres Muschietti’s IT: Chapter 2 will begin filming this summer on June 18th. The site also claims that filming will take place at Pinewood Toronto Studios.

I guess we’ll see if this rumor is true or not in the next few weeks as the casting of the adult Loser’s Club should be underway one way or the other soon as the movie already has a set release date in September 2019.

Are you excited that IT: Chapter 2 might begin principal photography this summer? Let us know below!

IT is directed by Andrés Muschietti from a script by Chase Palmer & Cary Joji Fukunaga and Gray Dauberman, based on the novel by Stephen King. The film stars Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs, Nicholas Hamilton, Owen Teague, Javier Botet, Steven Williams, and Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

IT: Chapter 2 creeps into theaters September 6th, 2019.

BUT THE ORIGINAL ON BLU-RAY HERE!

Synopsis:

A group of young kids faces their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
